Amazing stay! Fantastic beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beach house! The house is spacious, and we could all spread out. It even has a seperate living area and bedroom/bath in the tower if you need to get away from the crowd. We used the pool area several times and enjoyed the nice view of the sand and surf. Just a couple steps down the drive and you're on the beautiful white sand beach, which was not crowded at all. One day we even had the beach all to ourselves! The house has wifi, cable tv, and all the amenities of home. Beds were comfortable, furnishings were new, and house was clean. Really good rates considering how big and spacious this place is. My family and friends will be back next year, and I would recommend this place!

Great place for large family

  • 5 of 5

Loved the property!! The pool was nice and house was close to the beach. There was a large table to eat with the family and plenty of bath rooms. Next to your private pool there is a nice grill to cook on. I could go on and on about how great this place was. I would stay here again.

Enjoyed the week with family

  • 4 of 5

Thie house was ideal for us (10 adults and a two year old) plenty of room. On a cul de sac with a very short walk to the beach less than two minutes. Pool was a big plus if you choose this house to stay in you will not be disappointed. The tower is a great use of space, it is connected to the main house and is ideal for a family with a small child. The only complaint we had was that we would see ants in a couple of the rooms but I would recommend this house and we will try to rent it again next year. Usually in a beach house you get 1 big bedrooms but this house has 4. Some of the light bulbs were out but did not cause a problem

Fort Worth, Texas

Owner, House Terriffic (Just one thing...)

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at this address over the Independence Holiday. When we arrived, the owner was in the process of replacing a couch and window blinds that were completely destroyed. We were shocked that anyone would think about doing this, but the previous renters apparently thought that a non-refundable deposit was worth it. (I didn't realize the deposit was non-refundable, either, until my wife informed me of it later. This was a first for us, as a deposit for damages is usually paid, and returned when everything is as it was before we rented. We usually make an effort to actually make things better than before, so it's never a concern for us.) That fine-print aside, I would like to strongly recommend this house--and owner, who was most gracious, and went above and beyond with a little situation we ran into.

The home is beautiful, and arranged in such a way that the 3 master suites were far enough away from each to be very quiet and private. The kids rooms were just what we were looking for, as well. There are bedrooms and bathrooms aplenty, here. The home is well appointed, and the A/C worked well. The television service came and went, but we were not there to watch television, so this was not a problem. The walk to the beach is literally across the street and over the berm.

The washer and dryer were kept running and never missed a beat. The large pool is shared with the owner's home, next door, but we were the only ones using it for all but 2 days. We would recommend this home to anyone.

This was our first exposure to the Gulf Shores area (and Ft. Morgan); and we were there the first of July, but while we have stayed in humid areas before, the humidity in this area is the most repressive we have experienced. It drove the heat index well above 100 degrees, every day. This is something we don't experience in other gulf locations. Of course, this is not at all the fault of the property owner, but perhaps others should do the 'homework' we didn't.

In summation, after consideration of the non-refundable deposit and the extreme humidity, this property and owner should definitely be "in the running".

Bixby, OK

Excellent Location with Pool, needs some work

  • 3 of 5


-large house, slept 13 comfortably

-quiet location with a private beach

-large pool

-close to Fort Morgan ferry and Sassy Bass restaurant


-House needs some TLC.

-Pool area needs updated. Several nails sticking up, boards are old so splinters were common

-Lots of ants in the house, not sure much can be done b/c there are lots of ants outside.

Overall we enjoyed ourselves and were happy with the unit, but we expected the house to be in better condition for the $$.
